“What’s Up With Water” condenses the need-to-know news on the world’s water into a snapshot for the start of the workweek.
Host Eileen Wray-McCann: “There is so much going on that’s related to water, but often it’s hidden behind the very things that it influences – agriculture, say, or energy or climate change. This podcast is a sort of ‘heads-up’ on the water stories that are percolating at the start of the week, so that you can track the developments and trends in the days ahead. Or simply be aware of what’s going on, and find out more about it through Circle of Blue’s in-depth and on-site coverage of water news, issues and analysis. In so many places we turn on the tap and there the water is – I bet many people will be surprised to hear what’s going on with what they take for granted, and how it gets to them.
